    Hadlow back on top as PKRA World Tour fires up

    Great to see Aaron Hadlow back on top of the podium within weeks of joining the North Kiteboarding Team. Aaron joined us in St Kilda a few years back as 5 x World Champion and hit the water with a young 13 year old ripper riding a 4m kite that day. 6 years later young Mr Ewan Jaspan was fighting for a top 10 position on the tour prior to injury and Aaron is making his return to competition kiteboarding. Awesome to see! Enjoy […]

  • Fiji 2014



    The all new 2015 model stock is not far away, the KR Crew have returned from our KR WINTER ESCAPES in super high spirits, the winds have been firing back at home base and things are great… what better reason to share the stoke with some awesome deals!

    We want to get some new kiters hooked (no pun intended) and help you add a little love to the quiver as we say goodbye to the winter chills […]


    KR CLUB August Social Night

    Fantastic to see so many smiling faces at this months KR CLUB Social Night. There was plenty of talk and excitement following the Fiji Winter Escape Tours and it was awesome to see everyone… yet hard to recognize people in their work attire as opposed to boardshorts and bikinis. Some sad news this week as KR Instructor Liam Davidson was involved in a car accident up in Port Douglas. After multiple surgeries to his leg he is now stable and awaiting final surgery in […]

    The new Naish 2015 gear is here NOW! Exciting times…

    There’s definitely been some very exciting new additions and refinements to the range this year. For those looking for awesome Freeride performance (big jumps, powered turns, kiddy pool shredding, old school fun kiting) and outstanding Wave performance (small right through to very big stuff) then the all new PIVOT will be your go to kite. Loved last years PARK but were thinking that you’d go that bit more aggressive and take the leap […]
